Zumiez Inc. Announces Fiscal 2014 First Quarter Results

Company Reports First Quarter Diluted Earnings per Share of $0.09

LYNNWOOD, WA -- May 22, 2014 -- Zumiez Inc. (NASDAQ: ZUMZ), a leading specialty retailer of action sports related apparel, footwear, equipment and accessories, today reported results for the first quarter ended May 3, 2014.

Total net sales for the first quarter ended May 3, 2014 (13 weeks) increased 9.7% to $162.9 million from $148.5 million in the first quarter ended May 4, 2013 (13 weeks). Comparable sales for the thirteen weeks ended May 3, 2014 increased 1.8% compared to a comparable store sales decrease of (0.7%) in the first quarter of 2013. Net income in the first quarter of fiscal 2014 was $2.5 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, in the first quarter of the prior fiscal year. The results for fiscal 2014 include costs of approximately $0.6 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, for charges associated with the acquisition of Blue Tomato, and the results for fiscal 2013 include approximately $1.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for charges associated with the acquisition of Blue Tomato.

At May 3, 2014, the Company had cash and current marketable securities of $107.8 million compared to cash and current marketable securities of $97.6 million at May 4, 2013. The increase in cash and current marketable securities is a result of cash generated through operations, partially offset by capital expenditures and stock repurchases.

Rick Brooks, Chief Executive Officer of Zumiez Inc., stated, "Our merchandise and selling strategies helped deliver better than expected first quarter results, including positive comps, and continue to distinguish Zumiez as the leading global action sports lifestyle retailer. The investments we've made in our people and systems including expanding our digital capabilities are allowing us to better meet the needs of our North American and European customers and supporting full price selling in a challenging retail environment. We remain confident that our strategic course will continue to yield market share gains and improved profitability over the long-term."

Fiscal 2014 Second Quarter Outlook
The Company is introducing guidance for the three months ending August 2, 2014. Net sales are projected to be in the range of $167 to $171 million resulting in net income per diluted share of approximately $0.12 to $0.16, which includes an estimated $0.6 million, or approximately $0.02 per diluted share, for charges associated with the acquisition of Blue Tomato. This guidance is based on an anticipated comparable store sales result in the range of a low single digit decrease to flat for the second quarter of fiscal 2014.

The Company currently intends to open approximately 55 new stores in fiscal 2014, including up to 7 stores in Canada and 5 stores in Europe.

A conference call will be held today to discuss first quarter fiscal 2014 results and will be webcast at 5:00 p.m. ET on http://ir.zumiez.com. Participants may also dial (617) 614-4072 followed by the conference identification code of 17152136.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service. In his session at 19th Cloud Exp...
"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Chris Webber, security strateg...

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling?
